Arsenal’s inconsistency has been pretty clear some times this season. These poor showings have negated the input Unai Emery is bringing to the Arsenal side at the moment.
While we evaluate the needed variable to get Arsenal back firm in the season we look back at the matches that might have spoiled the momentum of the North Londoners.
- Arsenal 0-2 Manchester city (Match Day 1)
It’s very important to start from this match as Arsenal lost it at home to League Champions Manchester City.
This match must have seen Unai Emery lose confidence in himself because he was a new coach and his first match ended in a defeat.
This match saw the gunners drop three points when their next opponent was Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge.
- Arsenal 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
This match was potential three points for the club on a normal day but the fact that two points were lost at the Emirates Stadium tells the whole story as regards to Arsenal’s 2018/19 season.
Wolves might have been impressive in beating Eden Hazard’s led Chelsea 2-1 and masterminding a 4-3 over former Champions Leicester City but there is no excuse as Arsenal must learn to win games irrespective of the outcome of the rivals in the Premier League as Liverpool has done all season.
- Brighton & Hove Albion 1-1 Arsenal
This was another match Arsenal failed to pick up the three points against the hosts. Chris Houghton’s men took the shy out of the Gunners as they forced a 1-1 draw in the fixture.
How then can Arsenal win titles or has top four position been the benchmark for the club? This is not good enough for Arsenal and all its finical investment as the club supporters deserves better performance from their club on the pitch.
- Liverpool 5-1 Arsenal
Arsenal’s top relevance was rendered to nothing as they scored to inflict the danger against themselves. This awakened the Lion in Liverpool as Salah, Mane, and Firmino scored five to shock Arsenal at Anfield.
Everything was playing to Liverpool’s perfection as defender Shkrodan Mustafi limped off injured to spell the doom for the Gunners.
This was a match that got Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang underperforming on a very personal level as the player took to Twitter to rend his apology for the 5-1 loss to Liverpool.
- West Ham Untied 1-0 Arsenal
This revealed further Arsenal weakness as some level of character was lacking from the Arsenal team congress.
Nasri ran the show to his team perfection as the visitors (Gunners) lost out in the London Derby. This was ensured by Declan Rice who struck the only goal of the tie to condemn Unai Emery’s side to another defeat this season.
